Governors provide their time to help the school on a voluntary basis and come from a range of different backgrounds. There are a variety of different roles within the governing body but ultimately it involves working with the head teacher and senior leadership team to make sure our pupils receive the best possible education.

The governors at John Bamford are a mixture of elected and appointed individuals. All governors, regardless of elected or appointed status are recruited on their skills, knowledge and experience to build a balanced governing board to provide support and challenge to the school leadership. All governors attend all meetings which cover standards, finance and premises, health and safety and personnel.

We support the head teacher and the dedicated team of staff, but also we will challenge, where necessary. Our role differs from that of the head teacher, the Governing body has a strategic role and sets policy, whereas the head teacher has an operational role and is responsible for delivery of the policies which have been agreed. Governor’s decisions are made following informed discussion, whereas the head teacher uses professional judgement.

Governors welcome feedback from the whole school community and we want you to tell us what you think about how we are doing. If you have any comments you wish to make about our school, any of the governors would be happy to hear from you.

If, however, you have a concern about the school then talk to one of the governors. If you want to make a complaint about an issue at the school then you need to speak to the head teacher, if you are still not satisfied then the matter can be raised with the Chair of Governors.

Attendance for governors is currently above 95% for the past two years. Further details of attendance can be obtained from the office and will appear on the website in due course.
